A. w. Colyar, t Oolumfeia, Tennessee,

published the speech "yesterday? and
the editor very innocently observed
that Col. Colyars remarks failed to
convince him that repudiations right.
But a closes inspectier f the speech

escaies me attention or ine casual
reason why these papers are publisn
the coeoanut, and that is probably
tbe reaoti why our cotemporary
found so much siace in which to pub
lish the whole speech. Col. Colyar
made tbe same speech in 4bis .city
sometime ag, exeept 'that 'fmri in
which he defends the penitentiary
ring, and the Tribvne didn't publish it.
Why give it so much space now? We
undertake to say that the publication
of that speech fn a niftmber of papers
has been pftld for by the penitentiary
leases,' ana Out for this defense7 of them

Another fact of significance is that
the only newsyapers that have pub

those that advocate extreme high tax

Knoxville Tribune. Comment Is un

In view of the tact that- Col. Coryar

took up two o the exceptions as be
ing the only ones necessary to consid
er iu rendering a judgment, 'liiese
wore, that therebad been no prclimi

praetiofr to prosecute by information.
Both' exception, were dismissed: tlie
first: upon the ground that a prelimi

uu, second tnat prosecution y in
lormauon uas been a common rule in
criminal prosecutions for many years
.csucpung to tne orawmg ot a jury
was also dismissed oii the grounds of
violations of the spirit of the law is not
preiendea relative to the offence itself.
The court gave an abstract of the elec
tion law, detailing its requirements;
the exact method prescribed by law
was fully described. The record of
fered in evidence did not conform
to that mentioned in tbe informa
tion docket. The offer was a consoli
dated statement, certified by the , reg
ister of voters, and not the original
return, and tlie statute of our States
does not attach much , value to this
consolidated statement. The original
returns not being altered, would not
change the result of the election and
Interfere with the interest of the peo
ple. The paper offered in evidence is
not the paper charged as being forged;
in order to be a forgery an instrument
which it is alleged is falsified must, if
true, be legally capable of committing
a fraud; nowhere in law is a consoli
dated return -required as a declaration
of the result, and its alteration or mod
ification can hi no way affect an elec
tion, it every consolidated return
complied with the law and made their
statement from the commissioner's
returns, no injury could result. It
does not appear that any paper has
lieen forged that is calculated with a
compliance with law to change the
result. It Is the essence of this crime
that it should be committed bv a nub

From the Nashville Banner, March 20.
An almost steady stream of human i
tyixured into tbe jail to-day, to see
the Brassoll brothers, who will be exe
cuted at Cookevilhy Putnam county,
one week from to-day. By two o'clock
this afternoon fully three hundred per
sons bad gazed at tha doomed men
through the curtain bars. It is thought
that the number of visitors will reach
over tour hundred by the time the
hour for denying arsons admission ar
rives. The brothers seemed to be in
couparatively good spirits, aud said
tney were glad to see so manv comimr
to visit them. To day they finished
writing the following letter, which
was sent to their relatives:
N asu viixk, Ten., Mar. 1 9, 1 878.
Deak Brother : We will . write
you a few hues for the last time in
life. Gov. Torter did not get back
until last Saturday. We written him
a note on Monday to come to see us,
and see in this morning's paper that
he has left for Memphis, and that a re
porter asked him if he had come to
any conclusion. He said he had, and
he aimed to let tbe law have its course
60 there is no hopes for us, but have
got to die. We are thankful to Al
mighty God that we can say as Paul
did, the time of our departure is at
hauu, but thej' ar layed up for us a
crown. Our Bible says tbe guilty flee I
before they are pursued, but the inno

all about our nice meetine on last

tor of Elm Street Methodist Church,
accompanied by about 40 young la
dies, members of bis congregation, and
a number of youne men visited the
jail for tbe purpose of holding religious
services with us. Mr. Yarbroueh. the
jailorl had a number of seats placed in
the jail yarde. The services was
opened with the singing of a num
ber of gospel songs, followed by
the reading of she Scriptures from
the 5th chapter of St. Mark and the
3d chapter of St. John, which passage
was explained by Dr. Leftwich. The
song, "I am so glad that Jesus loves
me." was surg i.y the young ladya,

came into the House and' charged,
that it was all done for the punxise of
securing a fund .to pay Rebel war

The Atlanta Constitution says tbat
there is a strong sentinient, in the
South, in favor of re-establishing the
whipying post. We believe the Con
stitution is correct in this assertion.
The Jxver House of tlie Kentucky
Legislature recently passed the whip
ping pom iiiu, uut it runea m tne Hen-
ate ov onty one vote.
Tbe lxttch Is the first , and only
Iaper in this State that has favored
the introduction of the wliipniDir post
in 1 ennessee. w e say now as we did
then, thet the re-establishment of the
whipping iost would, be the beet and
mart efieetual means of getting clear of j
tne army ot tramps and dead beats
that now flood the country. The
